Leroy Emmanuel - The Original Funk Brother
Listen to the words of the legendary guitarist Leroy Emmanuel in the Fireside Chat interview that you can find in the end of this article. Leroy was once a steady member of Motowns legendary studio band The Funk Brothers who was the rhythm sector behind countless Motown hits.
I took the images that illustrates this article at Newworldsons concert at Gullbranna Festival. At the concert at Gullbranna the original members in Newworldson Joel Parisien and Mark Rogers was backed up by the Chops Horns (Darryl Dixon and Dave Watson), the bassist "Big Bad" John Irvine and the original Funk Brother Leroy Emmanuel. If you are given the opportunity to see this funky constellation live do it!
